Introducing: Mangos for Christmas

We are so excited to introduce one of Lifesong’s most recent projects, Mangos for Christmas, a children’s book written & illustrated by former Zambian missionary (along with some illustrations from our students in Zambia!). Mangos for Christmas takes place in a small Zambian town and steps into the world of young Gift, who is about to experience the joy of giving for the first time.

First Look at Student Life Homes!

Last October, the dream of Student Life Homes was born. Now, a year later, after fundraising, construction, and faithful advocacy, our freshman class gets a sneak-peak on the progress of the building that soon be their home! WATCH below… This residential program will help provide a safe environment for students to thrive. The homes you see in the video will house some of our freshman class students, with the hope of eventually ramping up to 13 homes for 125 students.  Student Life Homes will serve as a safe haven for some of our students who live in the compound. The compound can be a place of violence, crime, or abuse, not giving our kids an environment to thrive not only in their education but their relationship and growth in Christ. “When I was living in the compound, my life was not good.  My mom was drinking and when she would … Continue reading

Zambia: Serving Even When School’s Out

One of the advantages of year round schooling is that the kids have a one month break three times a year.  As a school, it’s our goal to make sure the learning doesn’t stop and the life lessons continue being taught.   This term break we had two amazing events for our students to engage in. The first was a community outreach in partnership with a church in Texas and Mission Regan.  Our kids served right along side of a medical team, not administering prescriptions or pulling teeth, but translating and praying for each and every patient. FBC McKinney and Mission Regan were able to give high quality medical care, some life saving, to over 1,700 people in the Garneton Community – all for free (pictured above).  The second life lesson that our students learned was while they were at J-Life Camp. We had 44 students, and 2 AMAZING TEACHERS, … Continue reading

Remember “Help William Walk”?

  Help William Walk…4 Years Later In 2010, 5-year-old William asked his mother, “Why do other children walk on the bottoms of their feet? What did you do to me?” When she told him that it was God who did it, not her, William said, “Then please tell God to fix me.” Many of you may remember William’s story. Healing seemed like a distant dream for the common clubbed feet deformity in Zambia. When his story was told, believers back in the states could do nothing but act.  Over the span of several months, God’s people were moved to action. Connections were made, doctors were contacted, money was raised and eventually William had corrective surgery on both feet, allowing him to not only walk, but run and play! Now, four years later, 9-year-old William loves to play football and other outside games. He has a sweet heart for God that is shown in his … Continue reading

Teacher’s Influence Changes a Life {Lifesong Zambia}

 Please enjoy this update from Shane McBride, Lifesong Zambia Director… Last month, Lifesong School opened it’s doors to the new 2014 school year. We brought in 28 of the cutest 5 year olds and about 10 older children (mostly double orphans). Due to life circumstances, these older kids have not had constant schooling. Teacher Osward is tasked with filling in the years of educational gaps and giving these children their last chance in the education system. Teacher Osward hopes, over the course of 9 months of instruction, he can build into and reach their hearts and minds while unlocking their learning potential and changing their lives. Teacher Osward was recently told a story about one of our older staff, Teacher Majer…  Last year, Teacher Majer had a difficult job. When he started the school year, he had 49 students in his class. WOW, 49 kids! How can one connect with … Continue reading
